In Ancient Rome, Suicide Was Never A General Offense Under Law
In Ancient Rome, Suicide Was Never A General Offense Under Law by Gistreal(m): Mon 28, March, 2022

A citizen who wants to commit suicide must first apply to the Senate. If the application is successful, the government itself makes an arrangement to make the citizen drink poison.

There are only three cases where suicide is forbidden:

1. People accused of capital crime can't commit suicide. This is because if a criminal commits suicide before the law tried and judged him, the government loses the right to seize the criminal's property.

2. Soldiers are not allowed to commit suicide. If a soldier commits suicide, the government will interpret it that the soldier is a coward running from battle. With that interpretation, a soldier who commits suicide faces the same judgement as the soldier who deserted his comrades during war.

3. Slaves are not allowed to commit suicide. If a slave commits suicide within 6 months he was purchased, the master has the right to claim a full refund from the former owner of the slave.
